Conclude the McNay Art Museum’s 70th anniversary Summer Film Series with a screening of the iconic 1954 film, Godzilla. Directed by Ishirō Honda, this classic monster movie tells the story of a colossal sea creature awakened by nuclear testing that wreaks havoc on Tokyo. As the city faces unprecedented destruction, scientists and military personnel race to stop the beast.

Godzilla is not just a thrilling cinematic experience but also a poignant commentary on the nuclear age’s fears and anxieties. This screening ties in with the special exhibition, de la Torre Brothers: Upward Mobility, featuring their powerful lenticular piece, Coatzilla, which also reflects on themes of destruction and cultural impact.

Join us for this unforgettable finale celebrating the McNay’s seven decades of engaging a diverse community in the discovery and enjoyment of the visual arts.
